Martin Flyer’s Bridal Party Preview

 

 

Since you’ll be browsing the largest selection of Martin Flyer inventory we’ll have in store this year at our Bridal Party on April 19th, we thought you might like to know some information about the brand, and of course, view some photos of their incredible engagement rings.

Martin Flyer opened its doors more than 65 years ago and is one of the most recognizable names in the jewelry industry today. Now based in a 10,000 square foot facility in Manhattan’s diamond district, the family business continues to carry out the Flyer tradition of providing customers with the highest quality products, competitive prices, and first class service.

Martin Flyer’s FlyerFit line was created in 2006. FlyerFit rings seek to eliminate “the dreaded gap” that exists between the engagement ring and the wedding band so the two rings fit together perfectly.

Martin Flyer engagement rings are broken down by five categories: Three Stone, Solitaire, Shared Prong, Micro Pave and Channel in order to simplify the buying process. Pick your favorite! There are images of all five categories below.

What’s Hot Now…

 

From now until our bridal party on April 19th, we are kicking engagement posts into high gear. We are obsessed with everything that is diamond and sparkly, and of course, trendy! G. Thrapp has a variety of colored diamonds, double halo settings, mixed metals, floral detailed, twisted bands and East-West setting engagement rings, all of which were named as The Knot’s “2014 Engagement Ring Trends”. We’ve compiled pictures of rings at G. Thrapp Jewelers that match the trends predicted by The Knot. Which trend do you like the best?

Colorful Diamonds are great for a woman that is really looking to make a unique statement with her engagement ring. G. Thrapp has sold several yellow diamonds and a few pink and blue.

Double Halo engagement settings are popular because they add a significant amount of sparkle and they make the diamond look even larger.

Mixed-Metals are really trendy in the jewelry industry so it is no surprise that people are starting to purchase mixed-metal engagement rings. These Beverley K Collection bands come together to make a flawless stacked look. We love these rings because by combining two metals (namely gold and silver) you never have to worry about your ring matching your other jewelry!

Twisted Bands are a nice way to add a touch of whimsical femininity to an engagement ring, and the soft lines are a great added detail.

Floral Detailed engagement rings are perfect for the woman that wants to throw the traditional setting to the wind. They are very romantic and typically add a touch of femininity to a vintage style ring. As you can see, they are also VERY unique.

East-West Settings actually make the diamond appear larger – this is becoming popular for marquise, ovals and emeralds cut diamonds. G. Thrapp Jewelers has custom designed several east-west rings, including the ring pictured below.

We LOVE These Jewelry Storage Ideas!

 

Sure, jewelry boxes are okay, but how about something that can brighten up your room or make for more unique jewelry storage. We went next door to Be the Boutique, and gathered any type of stand, bowl or tray we could find. We had so much fun experimenting with these brightly colored pieces. We made sure to list what we used in the making of the jewelry storage display as well as the designer jewelry photographed underneath each image. As you can see, things like mirrors, cake platters, coffee cups, measuring cups and even candle holders can make for surprisingly great jewelry holders! (This could also be a wonderful gift idea!)

Of course, after you visit Be the Boutique at 56th & Illinois for your jewelry storage purchase, be sure to stop G. Thrapp Jewelers and buy some jewelry to fill that storage!

“Wearable, Luxurious, and Beautiful”- Ron Hami

 

 

Ron Hami is known for his signature orighami design that closely resembles a honeycomb-type shape – it is present in nearly all of his pieces. His goal is to create pieces that are “wearable, luxurious, and beautiful.” Not only has Ron Hami has been featured in fashion magazines such as Harpers Bazaar, InStyle, Marie Claire, and W, but his designs have been adorned by many celebrities over the years.

At G. Thrapp Jewelers, we carry both the Ron Hami fashion line and bridal line. The combination of colored stones with the traditional honeycomb look is breathtaking. We love his bridal line because his unique, bold fashion style completely transforms what could be a very traditional engagement ring into an beautifully detailed piece unlike anything else on the market.

To see more of his fashion and bridal jewelry lines, stop by G. Thrapp Jewelers or browse our Ron Hami board on Pinterest. Here are a few of our favorite fashion pieces by Ron Hami:

He Finally Proposed…. But Stay Tuned.

 

Just when we thought our girl in the Broad Ripple text billboard was about to lose it on her boyfriend for not proposing… They got engaged!! Their relationship, spanning the past year and a half, has had many ups and downs that commuters in Broad Ripple and clients at G. Thrapp have gotten to experience. Our goal in making a “G. Thrapp Couple” was to connect with our viewers in a realistic way and show that we are a relatable store with a sense of humor. If you haven’t gotten a chance to drive by the billboard every two weeks for the past year and a half, chances are you have missed pieces of their text conversation. The entire text billboard saga is pictured below.

BUT do not be fooled just because there was a proposal… we have a surprise for you coming up in the next few weeks…here’s a hint: It has something to do with a party. To be Continued..
